Nashville Songwriter Lance Carpenter Launches New Coaching Platform
No. 1 hit songwriter Lance Carpenter has launched Music Row Coach, a new coaching platform. The online mentoring community for artists and songwriters will give users professional access to Carpenter and other music industry professionals, offering video lessons, exclusive workshops, and live coaching sessions to help artists understand the fundamentals of songwriting and the music business.
Carpenter moved to Nashville in 2011 and, within 18 months, signed his first publishing deal. He quickly secured 2 major cuts, achieving his first No. 1 with Kelsea Ballerini’s single “Love Me Like You Mean It.”
“Music is my passion, but mentoring is my purpose,” says Carpenter. “I want to open up doors that weren’t opened for me and I want to build doors that aren’t available now. I want to help others achieve their dreams. You’re going to learn things that you need to know and things you didn’t know you needed to know.”

Banner Music, Middleground Music Sign Manny Alexander
In a new joint venture, Nashville-based publishing company Banner Music and Middleground Music have signed artist Manny Alexander to a publishing and production agreement. He has plans to release new music later this fall.
Alexander left his small town and gained life experience as a member of the U.S. Naval Corps. Along the way, his lyrics and sound emerged as alternative sounding country music in a unique and powerful way.
“I think it’s pretty cool how these people have watched me grow, not only musically, but also as a person. I’m so grateful for Banner Music and Middleground Music for letting my creative energy flow without interruption and taking a small-town kid under their wing and making him realize that his dreams are bigger than the place he calls home,” Alexander shares.
“I’ve known Manny Alexander since he first picked up a guitar. I can’t express the excitement I have at being part of his first release and musical journey. I’m grateful Middleground Music believes in Manny just as much as we do!” says CEO and owner of Banner Music Camilla Kleindienst.
“Banner Music and Middleground Music have been on the hunt to find the right artist for which we both share great passion. Manny is a fellow Kentucky native & Tennessee resident and I am grateful to be in the position to help his voice be heard” says J.P. Hagan of Middleground Music.
